Wrongful and Constructive Dismissal

A wrongful dismissal occurs when an employee’s contract of employment is terminated by an employer in circumstances that violates the employment contract and gives rise to an employee’s right to reasonable notice of termination or pay in lieu and the employer fails to meet this obligation.
